Hello my name is Masuma Chowdhury and I’m a freshman in New York City College of Technology. For those of you that don’t know me, I’m really into art and design which is why I decided to major in Graphic Design. I took art and advanced studio class for four years in High School. Below is a drawing that represent my first and last initials of my name. And with those initials I decided to draw two of my most favorite food which is chicken and pizza. I also drew makeup because thats my passion! I love doing makeup and it’s something that represent me. That’s pretty much it for now, I hope to get to know you guys through out the year!


This is a simple drawing that represent me.

Get to know me a bit…


My name is Elliot Vidalon, I’m a freshmen in city tech, for those who don’t know. During my break, I like watching anime and I do draw them whenever I like. I’m also very interested of the Japanese culture and funny thing is I kind of learn some Japanese words from watching anime but the interesting part is my ancestors are actually Japanese because my mid-name “Wuatanave(Watanabe)” is related to a Japanese name coming from my fathers name. Beside of drawing anime and others, I also like music and whenever I like a song and want to play it, I have a piano to practice with and using only my ears to find the right note of each part of the music. I don’t only play piano but guitar as well and I’m still kind of learning. Since I’ve master my piano skills, I have the advantage to play other instruments and therefore I chose the guitar.
